Have It All

by Nick Gisburne

Two choices. Stay with this, with what you are,
The pleasant, passive, underwhelming life.
The mediocre job, the house, the car.
The smiling, happy husband, or the wife.
Or plough another path. Ignore the cost.
Surrender to the vagaries of fate,
And let the life you never loved be lost,
Before your nerve can break, too soon, too late.
Is yours a world of dreams too big to break?
Or something you would laugh to leave behind?
Your future is the only fear at stake.
Embrace it. Face it. Motivate your mind.
    Remember, if you want to have it all,
    You only need a thousand dollars. Call.
